Airfix 1/72 Nimrod MR.2

One that has been in the stash for a while. Not the easiest kit but goes together fairly quickly. Some of the instructions were a bit vague and sometimes plain wrong and the kit decals are pretty poor. The model is finished as XV233 of 42Sqn as it appeared in 1998. Painted with Xtracrylix Hemp and Light Aircraft Grey and Model Alliance decals Part III.

Lovely job! I too have one of these in the stash with a small mountain of aftermarket. Hopefully it'll look as good as that!

Nice to see one of these on here - I am pretty sure we all have one in our stash but you rarely see them built

Beautiful build. I think we all have one of these in our stashes. Again, nice looking kit well done.
